    this really begs the question does nintendo REALLY need to continue making casual games.
    The old casual games they made still sell tons, so it would be more profitable to just release 4 casual games and let them sell to 50 million, than make 20 games that sell 1 million each.

    That being said that cooking "game" seems pretty neat for somebody in the dorm who disappointed with cafeteria food every once in a while.

    No it does not "beg the question", that refers to posing a question that asserts what you're really trying to show. "Have you stopped beating your wife yet?" asserts that you were beating your wife in the past and by answering either yes or no you implicitely acknowledge that. Some say the correct answer to questions with an incorrect premise is "mu".

    Did Nintendo even make Cooking Guide? I seem to recall an Ubisoft logo on that box. Most of the "casual" games that don't sell that huge are from third parties, not Nintendo.
